Comprised of three distinctly separate areas -
Top Town, Lake Gregory, Valley of the Moon, and several nearby communities - Crestline started forming in the early 1900s around the lumber mills in the area. One of the earliest mills, operated by the Seeley brothers, was later bought by the city of Los Angeles and is still operated today as Camp Seeley, with its lodge and cabins making a rustic mountain get-away destination.
Housing developments started early in this area because it was the first accessible by improved roads and low enough to suffer less snow. The Skyland subdivision offered space for homes to be built where people could visit the mountains and enjoy clubs and resorts, many now disappeared or run by Parks & Recreation like Joe's Place in Cedarpines Park, and the original Arrowhead Valley Club, later rebuilt and now known as San Moritz Lodge.
Today, Crestline is home to several artisans as well as the mountain's only on-site winery, award winning Sycamore Ranch. Lake Gregory is a regional park with fishing, canoeing, waterslides, miles of walking shoreline, and a lovely dog park. Its easy access location makes it a favorite for year-round exploration and the hiking trails into the San Bernardino National Forest are legendary. A favorite spot to hike to is Heart Rock, though we're sure you'll find many adventures every day.
